TOHU presents


by Nikki & JD

“What I said…it’s the truth…but just not the whole truth”

Two acrobats meet…they fall in love and dream of the future. But behind these deceptive appearances lies a secret that could shatter this fragile illusion.

Both funny and touching, navigating between the spectacular and the intimate, Knot is a story of heart 2.0 where the acrobatic duo tells its story through hand-to-hand, gymnastics, capoeira and contemporary dance.

“Is there a word for the love an audience can feel towards two circus performers? If not, there ought to be.”
— The List ★★★★

Physically exhilarating and touchingly poignant, Knot is the internationally acclaimed debut circus and dance work by by Nikki Rummer and Jean Daniel Broussé. Nikki & JD use hand-to-hand circus skills to tell the tale of an impossible choice: how can we be honest with ourselves without hurting those we love? Knot is a finely crafted theatrical journey through the struggles of commitment.

Knot was winner of the 2019 Jacksons Lane and Total Theatre Award for Circus and a 2019 Herald Angel at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Created in collaboration with award-winning choreographer Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance Company, Knot is a very modern affair told with delicate sensitivity through breath-taking acrobatics and heart wrenching dance

Prior to the creation of Knot, Nikki and Jean-Daniel had already worked with many English and international companies: they joined Barely Methodical Troupe for their production Kin, they collaborated with Superfan on the show Nosedive. In 2021, Nikki and JD created their respective solos, Unbroken and (le) Pain.
